I can not say enough about this company! My window well had flooded and I called Drains Inc. based on their reviews and they did not disappoint. Tim came out to my house and looked at the problem and it ended up not being as big of an issue as we thought it was going to be. He walked me through what we could do to solve the problem in the future. It was very refreshing to deal with someone who could have very easily taken advantage of the situation and charged an astronomical amount of money and they didn’t. Tim even took the time to talk me through some other questions I had regarding my sub-pump. I will definitely call them again if the need arises.

Tim from Drains, inc is seriously the best — we've had a history of issues with our water backing up and our basement flooding. Tim diagnosed the root of our issues and we haven't had issues since then (over 2 years!). Not only that, Tim educates you rather than being condescending, which is really appreciated 😊 I highly recommend!

Our water heater went out on a Monday. I called Tim and he was able to come over and evaluate our needs. By Tuesday afternoon, I had a new water heater installed. His prices were reasonable, service was excellent and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a plumber.

Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow

Flood control systems

Backwater valves are generally easier and cheaper to install but they have some limitations. For one, you cannot use any of the facilities in your home while it is in the closed position. And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.

Backwater valves

prevent sewer backflow

If so the footing drains or seepage tile will need to be separated out to a new sump pump pit. If you have a basement with no sump pump pit, assume that you have the footing drains or seepage tiles tied directly into your sewer service. Contact us today for more information.

Regular maintenance for optimal preparedness

Some maintenance is required to keep the protection measure in operation. If a backwater valve is recommended to prevent sewer backups, you should realize that regular maintenance is needed to keep the improvement working as intended. Inspection and cleaning of a backwater valve system is recommended once a year.
